Default Winterizing: Another question?

I winterized the 95 coach but I think I'm forgetting something.

1. I drained the fresh water tanks, left them open.
2. Disconnected the fresh water inlet pipes to the water pumps.
3. Pumped 8 gallons of pink into the pipes and ran water until I saw a steady flow of pink at each location including the show & washer/dryer.
4. Shut everything off and closed the inlets to the pumps so not to freeze the pump filters.
5. Poured pink down the pee traps and toilet.

Do I need to add pink into the freshwater fill inlet, or am I good? Did I miss anything?

Thanks

John, the first year I had my coach I had to winterize it and haven't since then, but I forgot to drain the Konstant Hot or Insta Hot wich ever it is and the U-line ice maker had the fill solenoid freeze up. Both leaked and needed to be replaced. The Insta Hot was about $100 and the solenoid was about $25. I think I may have been lucky that nothing else on the icemaker was frozen. That's all I can think of that you have not mentioned.

Drain water heater.

Any water filter? Freezing will crack the cannister. The pink stuff ought to work but take the filter out first.

Last time I winterized I blew the water lines lines out with 20 psi air at the fill port. That spring I had a leaky sporlan in the fill line. Call me superstitious but I like the idea off pink stuff better than blowing out the lines.

If you didn’t get a good flow of pink on the hot water side, you will find out how expensive Aqua Hots are.

It was nice and pink, I even let the boiler heat up and ran out some hot pink stuff. Shut it down and opened the valves in the galley & bath.

John
Did you spin the washer with the pink stuff in the tub to cover the washer drain pipe?
I just did my bus today.

John,
I pump some pink stuff in through the water fill fitting also. I have a small 110V pump to do so.
